8:09 pm
national security adviser to president john bolton and this is what he had. with respect to what happened last afternoon could be a lot of things from a pretext set up by the regime itself to something else he's made accusations accusing the outgoing president of colombia of responsibility what he calls the extreme right wing in venezuela that means the vast opposition to his authoritarian rule and he's blamed the name financer is in the united states these are things he's said before and you have to take them for what they're worth. well we've been speaking to you rob we've had a. news agency that the interior minister in venezuela said six terrorists as they've been detained over the south a drain explosions i mean in the meantime to go back to kind of whether the u.s.
